I've just had a quick check on the spines and front covers of copies for 2014 through to the current one and can't see anything.  I'm afraid you will just have to sit down with a cuppa and go through them all!

It also means that we're only 6 months away from the days getting shorter again

Happy Christmas

A bit more than a second a day.  On that basis we'd only get about 3 minutes per day extra daylight by mid summer.

I saw him being interviewed on TV a couple of times.  He came across as a person who didn't take himself too seriously, which made a pleasant change for a religious leader.  He was certainly amusing to listen to.

They're getting everywhere.  I've seen them on a photography site and a financial site in the past 24 hours.

Covering ugly fence - minimal space

Ivy can get very heavy and damage the fence over time.  I'd be more inclined to look at something like cotoneaster or similar as it at least partly bears its own weight.

Karen (Hardy?) is certainly knowledgeable but possibly a bit too gushing and OTT?  I'd like to see Anton doing it.

End was different, it used to be knocked down to two doing a dance off, but all three did three dances.

See original post

 Bear in mind there are supposed to be 4 in the final, but Will Young doing a runner messed up the numbers.  I suspect that if the full number had been there not everybody would have done their show dance.  That used to be the last element, but always seemed unfair to me because all the couples had put so much effort into learning it.

What a final. Fab-U-Lous result too.
